1DayIrish + 1DayIrish
Thanks to your generosity, enthusiasm and Irish pride, our first-ever 1DayIrish was a success. Our community of alumni, parents and partners came together to support SHC, and what happened was extraordinary.
We raised $27,000 and unlocked all of our challenge gifts! Alumni donors from classes throughout the 1990s came in strong and won the Decade Challenge. We are inspired by your commitment to helping us provide an outstanding educational experience for the students of SHC. Thank you!
1DayIrish is a 24-hour opportunity to provide essential support for current and future students at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory. To honor our mission and our rich history, 1DayIrish will take place on Founders Day: May 2, 2018. 1DayIrish is an opportunity to come together as a community and demonstrate the power of collective philanthropy to ensure that SHC continues on its path to excellence.
Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for exclusive video content and for updates on our progress throughout the day. You can show your support by updating your social media accounts with a #1DayIrish image! View our Social Media Toolkit for resources.

What is 1DayIrish?
1DayIrish is a 24-hour opportunity, from noon to noon May 2-3, to provide essential support for current and future students at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory. To honor our mission and our rich history in this great city, 1DayIrish will take place on Founders Day. The tenets that SHC was founded upon in 1852 remain today: a commitment to serving San Francisco’s diverse youth and providing an academically rigorous, Catholic education. 1DayIrish is an opportunity to come together as a community and demonstrate the power of collective philanthropy to ensure that the SHC continues on its path to excellence.
Why should I participate in 1DayIrish?
It’s all about the students. The cost of tuition simply does not cover the rich learning experience that SHC provides, so 1DayIrish creates an alternative revenue stream beyond tuition to give our students the resources necessary to thrive throughout their four transformative years at SHC. Every gift makes a difference.
